Essential certification modules 1-3 are pre-requisites for this course. Thai massage is an accessible form of bodywork to almost everyone. The side-lying series will show you just how available this practice is to most people. In this class we will cover:

    • The application of the side-lying series for pregnant women, the elderly and the overweight as well as its benefits for the general population. This series is a powerful set of tools that will allow you to massage groups of people that are often deprived of compassionate touch,
    • The practical skills needed to approach pregnancy massage: to know when it is safe and appropriate as well as certain contraindications,
    • A full side-lying sequence of postures that will add another 1-hour to your list of postures, covering the entire back body from shoulders and neck to the feet,
  • The effective use of props in the side-lying position: “Make your props do the work for you”.

Module 1 sets a solid foundation in the practice of high quality touch. We do this by combining some anatomy with positive intention and our physical practice. When exchanging massages in class, you are receiving in-depth feedback from your classmates and the teacher as well as gaining a new understanding of the postures when you receive the massage. This first course will provide you with a sound 45-minute massage that focuses on the most common areas of tension, namely the shoulders, neck and back. Video of Drew demonstrating

 Module 1 Course Details:

Building a solid foundation in the concepts and the practice of high quality touch. Combining fundamental anatomy theory with positive intention and hands-on practice, we establish a base on which our following modules build a safe and successful massage practice. In addition to the four foundational principals of Thai massage, we learn:

  • Essential anatomy and physiology language that will allow you to accurately locate and describe the functions of specific muscles,
  • How to apply high quality touch techniques that are both safe and effective through the efficient use of biomechanics,
  • Functional anatomy of the back, shoulders and neck, which are the most commonly requested massage regions,
  • Thai massage postures that address these high-tension areas. In total this will equate to a 45 minute massage sequence that you can practice on family and friends,
  • The practical skills needed to approach a massage situation, how to build rapport with clients with clear communication, how to enhance the client treatment experience, and to prepare you for massaging outside the classroom.
